Were you able to make it work without the error? Im waiting for it to get warm so I can try this.

just got my kit in but i was sorely disappointed when i opened the kit. The box was all deformed, not the shipping box but the actual carry box. The Ballasts has small dents all over them. One of the screws is a different size and color, and another is completely stripped out and just dangling in there. I think i must have gotten a refurb or used kit cuz this thing also had hand and finger prints all over them. I am emailing them to get a replacement set sent out immediately. I am very disappointed that this happened. I was really hoping to get them installed this weekend.
I bought the top of the line, "digital brand" kit.

I found these promo codes on the internet. I tried it all and it works. It's 10% off on anything on retro-solutions. You can't combine them all. Just use one.

Promo codes:

FORDFORUM (Thanks eyeballeater!)
CLUBRSX
DODGE
DIESEL

If anyone finds anything more than 10%, please share! :)

Someone finally listened and got what I've been saying to get from the start and look at that he's worry and problem free! Here I thought I was a complete idiot :)
